  1. OVERVIEW OF SLMTA S L M T A trengthening aboratory anagement oward ccreditation

  2. What is SLMTA? A training and mentoring program developed to achieve immediate, measurable improvement in laboratories in resource-limited settings A structured improvement approachthat helps labs progress toward accreditation by national or international standards

  3. Two Ways to Use SLMTA Mentoring Classroom training Inspecting a storeroom “What’s wrong with this storeroom?” activity

  4. Basic Program Facts 10 Management Topics # Lab management tasks taught: 66 1 - Productivity Management 2 - Work Area Management 3 - Inventory Management # training hours: 60+ # of tools and job aides: 100+ 4 - Procurement Management 5 - Equipment Maintenance 6 - Quality Assurance # of training activities: 45 7 - Specimen Management 8 - Laboratory Testing 9 - Test Result Reporting 10 - Documents & Records

  5. 6 SLMTA Pillars What Makes SLMTA Effective? Content Implementation The content • 66 Management tasks and routines What do you do? Laboratory Management Framework (Level II - pages 5-7) Activities help you learn by doing 100+ tools and job aids help you perform those management tasks • 45 Hands-on training activities How do you do it? • Training content linked to Accreditation Readiness Checklist Proof that you’ve done it!

  6. Lab Management Framework forms the basis for the SLMTA Program 1. Productivity Management 2. Work Area Management Key areas of work = Training Module 3.

  7. 6 SLMTA Pillars What Makes SLMTA Effective? Content Implementation The Implementation • 3-workshop Series A process is needed to translate learning into changes in behaviors and lab practices • IPs are tied to content of each workshop • Intensive coaching on planning are critical • Follow-up visits ensure project completion • IP Reporting allows learning from each other • Improvement Projects • (IPs) • Evaluate training effectiveness • Help determine the focus of next workshop • Coach for site-specific problems • Assess improvement projects • Photographs taken from sites are powerful teaching tools • Site Visits

  9. Strengthen laboratory management Achieve immediate laboratory improvement Accelerate the process toward accreditation readiness Attendees An 18-month program with a series of workshops for the same group of lab managers • Pre-requisites to entry • Lab strategic plan and policy drafted • Lab TWG to drive accreditation forward • QA manager in place • Participant committed to same job responsibilities throughout the 18-month program • (preferred) Accreditation How To Be A Successful QA Manager SOP Writing Quality Control Strengthening Laboratory Management Toward Lab Improvement and AccreditationRecommended Program Map Month 0 Month 1 Month 4 Month 7 Month 12 Month 18 SLMTA Getting ready for final inspection Improvement Projects Improvement Projects Improvement Projects Workshop #1 Workshop #2 Workshop #3 Baseline Assessment End-of-Training Assessment (3 months) (3 months) (3 months) Gap Analysis & Action Plan Site Visits Site Visits Site Visits On-going support by partners and CDC in-country staff (on-site mentoring, monitoring of improvement projects) BioSafety Skill-based training (e.g., SMDP) Online Virtual Leadership Development Program (e.g., MSH) Quality Management System Additional Training/Technical Assistance Based on Gap Analysis (offered at ACILT or in-country by partners) Optional Complementary Training

  16. 6. The learning objectives in each module correspond to ________ in the Laboratory Management Framework. Job Tasks (Management Tasks)

  17. 7. Name three desired outcomes for Module 1 - Productivity Management. • Efficient work flow • Evenly distributed workload • Uninterrupted service delivery

  18. 8. Name one important tool that will be used to objectively measure the improvement achieved with SLMTA. Accreditation Readiness (SLIPTA) Checklist

  19. 9. What are the six SLMTA pillars? • Laboratory management framework • Hands-on, activity-based training • Training content linked to Accreditation Readiness Checklist • Multi-workshop series • Improvement projects • Site visits
